Abstract
Hadamard matrices are defined, and their basic properties outlined. A survey of historical and recent literature follows, in which a number of existence theorems are examined and given context. Finally, a new result for Hadamard matrices over $\Z_2$ is presented and given a graph-theoretic interpretation.
